About This Class

Illustrator for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to use Transparency masks, Clipping Masks and Layer Clipping Masks in Illustrator to crop shapes, text and images and to blend them. You will learn new techniques and the presentation is peppered with helpful tips and tricks for using Illustrator. All images and fonts used are free for download and I'll give you links to them all. Here is one of the effects we'll create in the class:

Fun and instructive class! Thanks Helen, I've learned a lot in this one!
For long-term AI users, being reminded of functions that have evolved (that is, changed since the early days) as AI has become more streamlined, is a wonderful thing ... especially in these bite-sized videos. Even if you were a wizard pre-CS, you can be slowed down if you have not kept up with "little" changes in specific steps in how things are done. Thank you, Helen!
great tutorial!
